Full Answer

Case IH provides the public with a comparison tool for farming combine specifications. The John Deere S650 Final Tier 4 offers farmers a six-cylinder engine of slightly greater power than the Axial-Flow 5140, while the Challenger 560C is notably more powerful, with seven cylinders and a much higher horsepower rating. The S650 provides farmers with a fully variable feeder speed, while the Challenger 560C features only a standard feeder speed on corn and soybean harvesting models. The grain tank of the S650 carries 253 bushels, while the 560C offers a significantly larger capacity of 350 bushels.

The Challenger 560C is the heaviest of these three combines, with a weight of 38,693 pounds, while the Axial-Flow 5140 is the lightest at 33,715 pounds. Farmers who purchase the Axial-Flow 5140 have the option to add a grain tank that provides 300 bushels of capacity, while the John Deere and Challenger models do not allow for optional tank modifications.
